My first instinct was to visit the bathroom, for the length of waiting could be anywhere from ten minutes to two hours. Cleaning staff had partially blocked the entrance to the closest bathroom and all stalls inside were full. This prompted me to head upstairs to the U.S. Departures section in the meantime.
Just as I joined the group, a black van pulled up to the doors.
Staff members and security began to disperse, waving aside fans and fansites in preparation for GOT7's entry. The scene was significantly calmer than that of their arrival, but then again, not many people expected the idols to fly out immediately following their concert.
Once inside, the fans gathered around the group and we - along with GOT7, staff, and security - collectively moved towards the security gate.
BamBam happily waved goodbye to us as he strode by with his huge black backpack. As he stepped past me, I remembered to hurriedly call out, "See you in New York!".
Next was Jinyoung, who kept his gaze low. "Bye Jinyoung!" I managed to catch his attention amidst filming: eye contact was made and a distinct nod was sent my way.
